Gain the new skills (and confidence) you need to engage students in meaningful remote learning.

In the current climate, educators find themselves actively managing to bridge remote and in-person teaching environments while being prepared to pivot back to online learning at a moment’s notice. That means educators need access to the tools and resources today that will give you the confidence and skills to take on new and important challenges throughout this school year and the next.  

The Remote learning virtual institute will help you reach those goals.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Discover specific steps every educator must take to ensure student equity in a remote learning environment.
  • Understand how to successfully implement a blended learning approach that includes both face-to-face and remote teaching time.
  • Learn how to use evidence – formative and summative assessments, surveys of teachers at previous year levels, etc. – to identify where to spend your instructional time.
  • Explore digital tools that help to successfully engage learners, whether they are working from home or in your classroom.
  • Acquire best practices for creating meaningful learning experiences for students with disabilities.
  • Explore unique strategies for differentiating instruction in a remote learning environment.
